Hurricane, tropical storm are swirling off western Mexico

At the moment Hurricane Hector is expected to pass approximately 150 miles south of Hawaii

Hector also posed no immediate threat to land, but forecasters said people in Hawaii should monitor the storm's progress as it was projected to pass just south of the islands by midweek. As of 11 a.m., the storm had sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with a northerly movement at 16 miles per hour.

However, only a small deviation to the north of the forecast track could bring tropical storm force winds to the Big Island later tonight or on Wednesday.

The center of Hector will pass about 200 miles south of the Big Island on Wednesday, according to the latest forecast from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu.

A high surf warning is also in effect for east-facing shores of the Big Island.

"There is a reasonable chance that Hector will survive to cross the International Date Line early next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis. The storm is relatively weak, far away and is not a threat to the Cayman Islands.

The CSU has forecast nine more named storms before the season ends in November, with three expected to become hurricanes and one a major hurricane.

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Debby formed far out over the north Atlantic, but it was expected to be a short-lived storm.

Hurricane Hector, with 130 mph winds, is about 540 miles east-southeast of Hilo.

Rain: Enhanced rainfall from the deep tropical moisture around Hector will affect the Puna and Ka'u Districts of Hawaii Island, and some of those rain showers may be locally heavy at times, especially on east and southeast-facing slopes.

Hurricane season runs through November 30.
